The Lives of Texts

The Lives of Texts: Exploring the Metaphor examines various instances of “textual subsistence” implied by the title. Drawing on the parallel between a text and a living organism, the contributors analyze various literary texts ranging from the Middle Ages to postmodernity, as well as film adaptations and the graphic novel. Apart from the works of canonical writers, attention is also drawn to some long-forgotten authors, along with the most recent instances of popular literature and culture. The exploration of the title metaphor allows the contributors to trace life-like phenomena (e.g. textual birth, maturation, dissemination, death and resurrection) in the texts of writers so remote from each other as Layamon, Thomas More, Mary Shelley, Charles Williams, Ursula Le Guin, A. S. Byatt, Peter Ackroyd, Iain Banks, J. K. Rowling, or Neil Gaiman.

Amphigorey

Edward Gorey, nacido en Chicago en 1925 y recientemente desaparecido, en abril de 2000, ha sido, sin lugar a dudas, uno de los autores e ilustradores norteamericanos más personales, originales e interesantes de la segunda parte del siglo xx. Paradigma de lo macabro y de lo bizarro, es autor de un centenar de libros ilustrados e ilustrador de otros sesenta. Autodidacta y excéntrico -vivió la mayor parte de su vida completamente solo, rodeado de sus gatos, libros y discos, y cultivando su gran pasión por el ballet-, Edward Gorey comenzó trabajando como director artístico en la editorial neoyorquina Doubleday y dedicando las noches a trabajar con gran empeño en sus propios libros. No obstante, debido al rechazo de los editores, que consideraban escandaloso el chocante y absurdo humor negro de sus obras, hubo de fundar su propia editorial, Fantod Press, y hasta distribuir y vender sus propios libros ilustrados. Su primera y peculiar mininovela, The Unstrung Harp (El arpa no encontrada) apareció en 1953. A ella le seguirían The Listing Attic (El desván del listado, 1954) y The Object Lesson (El ejemplo práctico, 1958). Sin embargo, sus creaciones no alcanzaron al gran público hasta que en 1972 la editorial Putnam publicó la antología que hoy presentamos, Amphigorey, cuyo éxito propició la aparición posterior de otros dos excelentes recopilatorios: Amphigorey Too (1974) y Amphigorey Also (1983), y elevó a su autor a la categoría de ilustrador de culto. Para definir los dibujos y las historias de Gorey podríamos remitir al lector a una tradición de ilustradores irrepetibles entre los que estarían sin duda Odilon Redon, Arthur Rackham, Alfred Kubin, Roland Topor, o, más recientemente, Tim Burton.

The Summoning

From the depths of the demiplane of shadow comes a new magic so mysterious it confounds even the Chosen of Mystra. From beneath the dune seas of Anauroch escapes one of Toril's most powerful and ancient evils -- the phaerimm. From Evereska, the last elven refuge on comes word of invasion. From nowhere appears a group of enigmatic sorcerers determined to destroy the phaerimm and save Evereska . . . for purposes known only to themselves.

The NewMediaReader

A sourcebook of historical written texts, video documentation, and working programs that form the foundation of new media. This reader collects the texts, videos, and computer programs--many of them now almost impossible to find--that chronicle the history and form the foundation of the still-emerging field of new media. General introductions by Janet Murray and Lev Manovich, along with short introductions to each of the texts, place the works in their historical context and explain their significance. The texts were originally published between World War II--when digital computing, cybernetic feedback, and early notions of hypertext and the Internet first appeared--and the emergence of the World Wide Web--when they entered the mainstream of public life. The texts are by computer scientists, artists, architects, literary writers, interface designers, cultural critics, and individuals working across disciplines. The contributors include (chronologically) Jorge Luis Borges, Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, Ivan Sutherland, William S. Burroughs, Ted Nelson, Italo Calvino, Marshall McLuhan, Jean Baudrillard, Nicholas Negroponte, Alan Kay, Bill Viola, Sherry Turkle, Richard Stallman, Brenda Laurel, Langdon Winner, Robert Coover, and Tim Berners-Lee. The CD accompanying the book contains examples of early games, digital art, independent literary efforts, software created at universities, and home-computer commercial software. Also on the CD is digitized video, documenting new media programs and artwork for which no operational version exists. One example is a video record of Douglas Engelbart's first presentation of the mouse, word processor, hyperlink, computer-supported cooperative work, video conferencing, and the dividing up of the screen we now call non-overlapping windows; another is documentation of Lynn Hershman's Lorna, the first interactive video art installation.

Elegant Enigmas

The delightful tales and theatrical drawings of Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) reflect a special kind of genius for what is left unwritten and unseen. In Gorey's vaguely Victorian world of well-tended gardens and opulent estates, smoke-belching factories and fog-shrouded streets, nothing seems certain or quite as it should be. Chaos lurks just beneath life's tidy surface, occasionally erupting in surprising events with unexpected, often horrific consequences. But when tragedy befalls Gorey's quirky cast of characters—hapless waifs, dusty dowagers, scheming tycoons, and unhinged maidens—somehow we can't keep from laughing. Far from casting us into the abyss, Gorey reminds us to contemplate mortality with a smile.In Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey, more than 175 reproductions include samples from Gorey's books, illustrations produced for other writers, theatrical sets and costume designs, and a wealth of individual pieces, many never before published. Sketches, typewritten manuscripts, doodles, and musings join the generous selection of finished works.Published on the occasion of the first retrospective of Edward Gorey's work, at the Brandywine River Museum, Elegant Enigmas is a tribute to a master artist and writer, who with murderously dry humor created a body of work singular in its brilliance and charm.
